This would be a great question to hand the Great Obama at the debate. Why does the Obama Regime routinely go for dependency?

It guarantees votes. By dangling a carrot in their noses, the Democrats (and not too few Republicans, I might add) obtain support form those communities dependant on the government. They can also use the dole as a political tool to scare people into submission.

More likely question:

Mr. President, your critics have attacked you on the basis of your compassionate commitment to providing more needy citizens with food stamps, even sinking so low as to call you the "food stamp President." How do you remain so cool and unflappable in the face of such racist invective?

Obama doesn't distinguish providing needy citizens from too-lazy-to-work citizens... he merely wishes to purchase more votes to stay in power. It's all about power, not the state of the union. He remains cool and unflappable because a) he doesn't give a poop, and b) he IS a racist.

dmarn-I watched a BIT of the farce last night and I must say, The Prez appeared to WISH he even ONE answer written on something! I almost felt a TAD sorry for him; but I don't have much empathy for ego-maniacs! Sorry

"There are no jobs!" That is what people told me outside a government "jobs center" in New York City.

To check this out, I sent four researchers around the area. They quickly found 40 job openings. Twenty-four were entry-level positions. One restaurant owner told me he would hire 12 people if workers would just apply.

It made me wonder what my government does in buildings called "job centers." So I asked a college intern, Zoelle Mallenbaum, to find out. Here's what she found:

"First I went to the Manhattan Jobs Center and asked, "Can I get help finding a job?" They told...
